I got this from the library just because it was on my list, but hadn't ever heard of it from other parents and, therefore, didn't expect to like it. However, it's very fall/winter appropriate with the colors. The poem isn't stupendous but it is pleasant. And the artwork is unique with the lines and curves and colors. So I ended up liking it more than expected.

This picture book has remarkable artwork to accompany the beauty of the poem that is equally mesmerizing. The opening lines read: “Trees are the kindest thing I know,/ They do not harm, they simply grow.” The words and pictures never lose their power at any time in this amazing book for preschoolers and up.
